The definitive book on Beck's diagram,
By A Customer
This review is from: Mr. Beck's Underground Map (Hardcover)
The definitive book on Harry Beck's classic diagram. Lovely hardback large format book 11" X 10" (reprinted edition 2003) with 80 pages ; 40 of which contain beautifully illustrated colour diagrams (many full page size) of the various maps issued from 1908-1964 but mainly about Beck's diagrams from his original sketch in 1931 until his last diagram in 1964. It charts the many alterations to the original design and contains a wonderfull apppendix that has over 10 pages of original experimental sketches. An excellently researched and thoroughly enjoyable book by Ken Garland.
